6.1 Material Receipt & Traceability
The pre-fabricated and painted steel structure material shall be received in
warehouse or near to erection area and placed on wooden supports. A log shall
be maintained for all materials received. The material will be segregated
drawing wise as per identification n u m b e r s already marked by the
manufacturer. Material handling shall be carried out in a manner to minimize
damage to painted surfaces. Nylon lifting belts shall be used during the steel
Steel Structure Foundation Check
The Concrete Foundations shall be completed and handed over to the steel
erection group with a release note and reference to permanent benchmark.
Each Foundation will be marked with centerline and level. Top surface
shall be chipped to the required level by machine/ manual chiseling (if
After foundation acceptance, the thickness of shim packing shall be
calculated to achieve bottom level of the steel structure base plate as
mentioned on drawings.
The shim plate/ packing shall be of steel material according to the ASTM-A36. To maintain the surface level underneath the shim packing plates, nonshrink cement shall be used.
The size and numbers of shim packers shall depend on each size of
foundation. The packing plates shall be installed in such a manner that
they are fully embedded / surrounded by grout material. A minimum cover of
50mm shall be maintained on the shim sides.
The level of all shim plates shall be checked by using survey level / water
A Survey Report shall be attached with release note.
Necessary curing will be done for all stages of grouting in accordance with
ERECTION/ LIFTING WORK
Only experienced Steel Erectors will be employed in the construction of
The pre-assembled members and other loose pieces shall be erected on
concrete foundations by crane. The steel structure elevation and
straightness shall be maintained as per drawings.
Guide ropes shall be tied to steel structure frames during erection for safe
guiding the lifted piece.
Access for erection shall be provided using Scaffolding platforms.
scaffolding work shall be inspected before use and appropriately tagged.
Temporary supports in the form of temporary bracing or guy wires shall be
installed. These are required to meet loading imposed during erection or
required at the end of workday to ensure safe and stable condition until final
foundation bolt tightening. Adjacent foundations shall be used as anchors /
Qualified welders shall carry out any welding required for light steel
structure member/ items. An approved welding procedure shall be
followed for this purpose.
The final bolt tightening, structure leveling and alignment shall be done
according to the applicable drawings, standards and specifications.
Experienced riggers will be employed for steel structure erection work and
only the experienced scaffolders will do the scaffolding work.
Before releasing the steel structure frame from crane hook, a visual check
will be done for adequate tightening of bolts up to 75%. Nuts & bolts shall
be tightened by hand prior to release the crane hook.
Acceptance criteria shall be as per Quality Plan for Steel Structure.
Installation of floors, platforms, ladders and handrails shall be done
according to the drawings and project specifications. Inspection shall be
done according to the Quality Plan for steel structure.
ERECTION OF STEEL STRUCTURE
RELEASE FOR GROUTING
Upon completion of steel structure erection all damaged paint surfaces
shall be cleaned by power brush and applicable painting system shall be
used for touch up.
TOOLS & EQUIPMENTS
Scaffolding & Platforms
Final bolt installation, torquing and inspection shall be done as per QP.
Upon acceptance the foundation shall be released for grouting. The
grouting work shall be done by civil group according to specification.
Applicable check list shall be followed as per QP and project specifications.
Visual Inspection only by using dumpy level and theodolite.
During execution of the job all measure shall be adopted to ensure safe working.
Client site management system (latest revision) will be implemented.
All personnel involved will use necessary PPE as required.
The workers will be made aware of safety requirements related to this activity
ERECTION OF STEEL STRUCTURE
through daily, weekly and monthly toolbox and safety talks.
Safety notice board will be installed.
All equipment will be inspected by HSE (IZHAR SEEL) prior to use.
During transportation of the steel structure the members shall be properly supported
and tied on the Trailer.
Only experience Steel Erector will carry out steel structure construction activities.
Safety notice board shall be installed.
During lifting of steel structure no body shall be allowed to work underneath.
Erection tools should be lifted or lowered by rope. Bolts, nuts, washers etc. should
be properly contained to avoid falling down. Every measure shall be taken to prevent
tools falling down e.g. tied off.
All lifting tackle will be inspected by HSE (IZHAR STEEL) according to
Access and good housekeeping should be maintained at site.
Fire extinguisher should be available in working area.
When working on height, proper fall protection measure shall be taken.
All access ladders and scaffoldings shall be secured and tagged before use.
Proper storage, handling and use of gas cylinders will be observed.
All cylinders shall be kept in trolleys and in an upright position.
Welding sets should be checked and maintained regularly for wear and tear.
Waste managements work Instruction shall be strictly followed to keep the job site neat
